DON'T WORRY, BE HAPPY

Mani Irani

 
You have no cause to worry or panic my dear. This empty feeling is Beloved Baba's game of hide-and-seek, an opportunity to long for Him all the more. He always answers and will make you feel full again.

It is not necessary to feel Baba all the time. What is important is to be for Baba and trust Him as a child trusts its mother's arms. He will not drop you, and as long as you make the effort to hold on to Him you can never slip away; for, as He told us, "Even your efforts to remember Me are My Blessings."

Isn't that why Baba says, "Don't Worry, Be Happy," for He takes care of His own, whom He has selected to grace with a glimpse of His Love.

If you are coming to India, don't come with any preconceived expectations of what you may receive; come just to lay your head at His feet and empty it of its burden, leaving the rest to His pleasure.
